KSI aka KSIOlajidebt is one of the richest vloggers. He started his current YouTube channel in 2009 and today he’s a rich young man. His net worth is estimated to be £2 million ($3 million) as of 2015. And it’s even better than that. He gets basically paid for playing video-games since most of his videos are about this topic. His first post was about FIFA video game franchise.
His real name is Olajide “JJ” Olatunji but the world knows him as KSIOlajidebt or simply KSI. What started as a hobby soon became a nice side income and eventually an incredible cash machine. He decided to drop out of school when his weekly income was £1,500. In one interview, Olajide admits that his parents were crazy about this decision. We can understand their point of view. What if your kid told you they are quitting school because they have to post more video on YouTube?
In 2013, KSIOlajidebt signed a contract with Polaris, one of Maker Studios’ sub-networks. After he made a name in a gaming community, Olajide also started with rap music. His next big hobby. His debut single named Lamborghini was released in March of 2015. It was a success. Lamborghini made it to 20th place on the iTunes chart.
As of May 2015, he has over 9.2 million subscribers on YouTube. This number is likely to rise in the future as well as his already astonishing net worth. KSI admits he already spent a hefty sum on some sports car (can we take a guess about the brand based on his single?). So what’s next? Maybe some nice luxury home. That would be nice.
